Sage Oil Vac unveiled the latest innovation in its mobile lube equipment.

The new VacBuilt system by Sage Oil Vac provides ready-to-use mobile service solutions. The first offering in the lineup is a waste oil tank, providing flexibility for service technicians who don’t require a new bulk oil tank when completing preventive maintenance on vehicles and heavy equipment.

A single waste oil collection solution can capture fluids from a mix of different vehicles utilizing different types and grades of oil.

Efficiency Meets Versatility: Sage Oil Vac's VacBuilt Sets the Standard

VacBuilt integrates a 30- or 60-gallon horizontal used oil tank with customizable mounting options for a hose reel and controls.

A removable mounting plate adds versatility, allowing users to mount the hose reel and controls either on top of the tank or remotely, based on the most effective configuration for their specific application.

This initial product offering, well-suited for the demands of mobile automotive fleet service and heavy equipment applications, features tank capacities that fulfill industry needs.

Sage Oil Vac's VacBuilt Simplifies Fluid Exchange

Sage Oil Vac's plans involve expanding the VacBuilt line with larger-capacity tanks, showcasing its commitment to innovation rooted in its proven pump-free technology.

These fluid exchange systems stand out for their speed, safety, cleanliness, cost-effectiveness, and versatility. Using clean, sealed tanks not only safeguards operators but also minimizes environmental impact by reducing spills.

For added convenience, VacBuilt systems are now pre-assembled at the factory, streamlining the process for customers and ensuring product quality.

Two brackets welded to the top of the used oil tank facilitate the mounting of the control panel and hose reel.

The control panel comprises a pressure gauge, a ball valve with a pressure relief setting, and a ball valve with a vacuum setting. Customers can choose between a one-inch by 50-foot hose reel or a 3/4-inch by 25-foot hose reel.

The Future of Oil Tank Technology

One of the key advantages of the vacuum-generator-operated VacBuilt is its utilization of Sage Oil Vac’s pump-free vacuum technology.

The vacuum generator, featuring a push-on fitting at the air inlet for simplified operation, uses compressed air to create vacuum pressure for fluid movement to and from tanks. Operating at a rate of up to six to eight gallons per minute, the system allows efficient vacuuming of hot motor oil from equipment.

The enclosed, no-pump system not only enhances operator safety but also minimizes environmental impact, as tanks remain unvented to the atmosphere. The absence of pumps translates to fewer maintenance issues, contributing to a lower overall cost of ownership.

Designed to be adaptable for both shop and mobile applications, VacBuilt eliminates the need for expensive centralized lube systems within a building.

In the mobile setting, these tanks easily fit into the bed of a truck, making them an ideal solution for customers engaged in mobile lube services and those exploring opportunities in the automotive mobile oil change business.
